Description:

I haven't seen a mole running around before - surprisingly fast, but kept stopping momentarily. I hope it was alright - seemed to have no problem digging!

Digging mole

I love the digging 'action shot' :-)

Only saw one above ground but the speed at which it tunnelled back underground was incredible -seconds only, although it was cultivated soil

The confused actions were probably simply because it was above ground. I'm sure it was OK; it certainly looks in good condition -fat and glossy, smooth coat.

Thanks for all the comments - I've only just found them (bit new here!). Pleased to hear the mole seems in good condition, they do seem to rather like our garden!
